VC Project Template for Smart Device CE Setup DLLs

It's pretty annoying to have to create a CE Setup DLL cpp and def file every time I make a new CAB. So I finally got around to creating a VC Template to handle that for me. You can download it here.

Sadly, I did not create an installer for this template.

Installation instructions (adjust your installation directory accordingly):

  1. Unzip the contents onto your drive.
  2. Copy CESetupDLL.ico, CESetupDLL.vsdir, and CESetupDLL.vsz to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcprojects\smartdevice
  3. Copy the Scripts and Templates folders into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\VCWizards\SmartDeviceAppWiz\CESetupDLL
  4. Edit CESetupDLL.vsz and edit the ABSOLUTE_PATH value to whatever you supplied in Step 3.

And that should do it! You will now find the new project template in Visual Studio under the Smart Device folder in Visual C++.
